On Sunday, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was carted off the field after absorbing a brutal first-quarter hit in his team's game against the Buffalo Bills.
According to reports, Tagovailoa, who was drilled when attempting a fourth-down conversion, had to be helped off the field, as he appeared to be in significant pain.
Tagovailoa, who was one of four for 13 yards and had been sacked twice before leaving the game, was hit by Bills' defensive end A.J. Epenesa after his fourth-down pass attempt fell incomplete.
The quarterback remained on the ground until the Dolphins medical team came to check on him and help him to the sideline. He was then later taken to the locker room for further evaluation via a cart as Dolphins fans held their breath.
